    I think coffee shops should be independent, local businesses anyway. They mostly have better coffee, and FAR better cakes etc. Any profits stay in the locality as well, and they often partner with local artists etc.

    The only thing you get from the big chains is consistency. Exactly the same coffees, and exactly the same e.g. number of cherries in a cherry slice (few). Consistently mediocre. Very boaring, but maybe an advantage for business meetings. I find Starbucks coffee awful anyway: seems overcooked.
